Tew will participate in the plenary session, “The New CSO - Chief Sustainability Officers: What role do they play in managing innovation and driving technology investments?” In this session he will share his expertise on the challenges and best practices for integrating sustainability into core business functions throughout a globally diverse industrial firm.

Session Details:

Title: “The New CSO - Chief Sustainability Officers: What role do they play in managing innovation and driving technology investments?”

When: Wednesday, June 11, 12:00 - 12:45 p.m.

Where: The Metropolitan Pavilion, 125 W 18th St., New York, NY 10011

Panel Description: How have CSOs' roles and responsibilities evolved in recent years? Is the CSO's responsibility moving towards the management of innovation and the identification of investment opportunities, especially in technologies? How do sustainability professionals contribute to the ROI and growth of their companies? How are they transforming their job to a “lookout role” identifying the deep changes in the company’s business and technology environment and contributing to the adaptation of its strategy? Is this what we could call: the “new CSO”? Scheduled to join Scott Tew on this panel are Darren Beck of Sprint, Gary Lawrence of AECOM, Beth Heider of Skanska, and moderator Matthew Rutter of Ernst & Young LLP.
